A warm, spicy soup - I'm posting this a bit early; it's really a great fall and winter soup.
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 1⁄2 cups evaporated milk
- Melt margarine and cook onion and garlic.
- Stir in the curry, salt, and pepper and cook for one minute.
- Add the broth and pumpkin, bring to a simmer, and cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
- Stir in evaporated milk just before serving.
This soup is delicious! I got a pie pumpkin in my CSA box ... fresh pumpkin made this even better. I used veggie broth and reduced it to only 2 cups. I used only half a cup of coconut milk ... it's plenty creamy!
I used coconut milk for evaporated and butter for margarine. I also served with a dollop of sour cream. Excellent! Easy, too. I also LOVED the pieces of onion in it. I think I sauteed them for 2 mins. instead of one. Coconut milk was a wonderful suggestion.
Ok, WOW! I debated for a bit whether to try this...it's so simple really. And I've wanted a pumpkin soup my family would enjoy for so long and I've tried so many-I just didn't know if I was up for disappointment again...WOW!!! THIS SOUP IS JUST THAT FABULOUS!!! My 17-year-old and I are licking the bowl after finishing the second bowlful...SOOOOO GOOD!!! STEAMING, HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL GOODNESS!!! I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS!!! I need to clarify a bit though. I had a 30 oz can of pumpkin. I figured I would use half a can and make pumpkin spice bread with the rest. Well, I read the recipe wrong initially and put in 1 T. of curry and was getting ready to scoop out another T when I thought...2 T or 2 t??? So I checked and realized error. I tasted. Hmmm...that's spicy stuff, curry powder. So I threw in the rest of the pumpkin and added 2 packed T brown sugar, pinch of cloves, ginger and nutmeg. Also, kid does not like velvety smooth soup, so I chopped up a few handfuls of baby carrots, probably 3 medium carrots and sauteed those with onions and spices. As long as she can chew on something she's usually happy. THIS IS A PERFECT SOUP! HOMERUN! I'M SURE EVEN HUBBY WILL APPRECIATE IT! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
